Jeremy vs Anna Its Summertime and the fishing is easy but over the chessboard it can get a little more complicated. That’s the fun of improving at chess. Watching yourself get better and better and finding more openings to employ and getting much deeper into a position. It’s like an elaborate battle of a war where suddenly the General finds out the enemy has received more help from unknown sources sand he now must change plans. So you try new strategies and more aggressive ambushes in the hopes it all works out. Some risk involved but not too much that you collapse from the sides or from behind. Even a hard fought battle can be welcomed with a draw because getting into huge trouble can feel like a victory when both side concede equality.
